So I thought this outfit was really cas and simple but pretty kick-butt when I put it together. Blazer and denim, the perfect put-together-but-still-laidback combo, right? But what I forgot was that the simpler the pieces are for an outfit, the bigger the importance is on how each of them looked and fit.
Because, though my jeans are not terrible, they are also not so awesome - case in point, me in other jeans in Friday's post - my legs look great in that post, IMO. By comparison, I feel like these jeans are not so much long, lean, sleek-inducing.
Point being, just because something fits, it doesn't mean that it fits. A girl needs more than one pair of jeans because there's different denim for different situations (why don't men understand this). These jeans I'm wearing would probably have looked more appropriate with some mid-heel western-style boots. The rest of this outfit would have done better with those Friday jeans.
So as I continue to scrounge Ebay looking for more J.Crew hipslung fit jeans (why are you not making them anymore because they fit me perfectly?!), I want to know what do you find that fits you best? What's your favorite fit and brand of denim?
